Big tech ‘procedural queries’ delay decision on first data fines

A decision by the Ireland’s data protection watchdog – Data Protection Commissioner – on whether to issue the first fines against big tech companies has been delayed by “procedural queries” raised by the firms. These include issues around company information it will share with other EU regulators.

Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon said the regulator’s decision-making on whether to fine big tech firms over potential data breaches has been delayed by “a lot of procedural queries” around information sharing with other EU regulators as part of the Irish regulator’s EU-wide inquiries.
